First Principles - Government: What Is Its Proper Role?




After the 2008 financial crisis and its aftermath a great political divide emerged among many Americans reexamining the direction of our country. One side says that unleashed free-market policies led to the worst downturn since the Great Depression, and calls for effective government to foster more equitable prosperity. The other side says that government has grown too big and too intrusive, and calls for the country to rediscover the virtues of limited government and free-market capitalism.

Moderated by WNYC's Brian Lehrer, this unique debate series will examine this divide and the social, economic, and moral beliefs that underlie politics in America today.

Join Demos, The Ayn Rand Institute and WYNC's ITSAFREECOUNTRY.org for part one of this three part debate series at NYU's Skirball Center. On March 10, Demos President Miles Rapoport will debate Yaron Brook, President of The Ayn Rand Institute. The evening's topic will be "Government: What Is Its Proper Role?"
